Who doesn’t love a summer picnic? Especially when it involves strawberries! Ok maybe LUSH Strawberry Picnic isn’t the typical picnic “basket” you think of, but it still serves up some delicious options for you. Just the kind you probably shouldn’t eat though. 😉
Included inside this set, which is tailored for those who prefer showers to baths, is Grass Shower Gel, Sugar Babe scrub, mini Strawberry Feels Forever massage bar and a Summer Pudding soap bar. It all comes wrapped in super cute strawberry printed wrapping paper with a green bow.
Sugar Babe scrub is a mimosa scented scrub for the body. It smells a little earthy in a good way to my nostrils. 😉 It comes in a half circle and kind of looks like tightly packed brown sugar! This scrub is on the rough side, but not harsh. You basically get wet, then scrub down. What I did with mine was get part of the scrub wet then broke that part off and used it. The scrub tends to melt and dissipate if you get the whole thing wet, and you definitely can use it multiple times if you save it. It left my skin feeling seriously soft and nice. Good stuff!
Summer Pudding Soap is a bar soap with scrubby particles in it to help exfoliate. Online the soap looks much different than mine looked. I think it’s supposed to be pink and vanilla colored, but mine was a tan color. I’m not thrilled with the scent or texture of this one. The scent is very herbal and natural. The texture is really hard, and it felt a little too harsh for me.
Grass Shower Gel is a grass scented shower gel. Yeah you heard me, GRASS scented. At first when I smelled this I didn’t really get grass, but definitely natural and “outdoorsy” scented. Once I used it in the shower I definitely smelled fresh cut grass. But I also swear I smelled gas. I am sure it’s a subconscious thing because I imagine grass and lawn mower going together. I don’t love the scent, it’s a bit strong. But I do like how it lathers up and makes my skin feel nice. The scent doesn’t linger too long on the skin though, so that’s a positive.
Strawberry Feels Forever massage bar is a mini strawberry shaped bar you use to rub over skin once dried. It smells fabulous. Like strawberries and chocolate to me. It feels very nice and non-oily. Doesn’t leave a gross feeling residue, just nice and moisturized. It’s easy to rub in and doesn’t pull or skip on the skin.
Overall: There are 4 items in this set and I like two of them a lot. The Grass Shower Gel had a great texture, and I like it in general, just not a fan of the Grass scent.
